About Me

Carey headshot I am an Associate Professional Clinical Counselor (CA APCC #12731) currently working at Dr. Attaway & Associates, offering in-person and online services. A former international aid & development worker, I spent 25 years living, studying, working and raising a family across eight countries in Europe and Africa. In 2017, my own mental-health struggles prompted a long-term move back to the US. After some time focused on my own healing, I discovered a love of psychology, and through that my next career path. In 2021, I received her first Master's degree, in International Psychology, from The Chicago School of Professional Psychology. In 2022, I completed my Master's in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Bellevue University. I practice under the supervision of Dr. Avis Attaway, CA LMFT #34493.

My approach to counseling is collaborative, supportive and open. No matter how you identify yourself or what lifestyle you lead, I got you! Queer? Trans? Religious? Not religious? A system? Different cultural background? Immigrant? Chronic illness? Addict? Think you've done something unforgiveable? Feeling too broken to be fixed? I got you. My counseling space is where you get to show up, all of you, in all of your identities, and just be yourself. For many of my clients, counseling is the only place they can do that. 

With a focus on attachment trauma, I am trained in EMDR as well as the Comprehensive Resource ModelTM for treating trauma of all kinds. I am also certified by the World Coach Institute in life, recovery and spiritual coaching. A self-described language geek, I offer counseling in Spanish, French, German and ASL. 

Member in good standing of: American Clinical Mental Health Counselors Association (AMCHA), American Counseling Association (ACA), California Association of Licensed Professional Clinical Counselors (CALPCC), ACA multicultural division, ACA rehabilitation division, ACA division for trauma & resilience counseling, American Psychological Association (APA), APA Division for International Psychology, and the APA Division for Trauma Psychology. In October of 2023, I was invited to present a scientific poster about CRMTM at a CALPCC professional conference.
